Specifying more complicated areas
You can specify areas with a complicated shape, as indicated in the diagram below. Press <Enter Multipoints> on the screen in step 7, and specify the area using 4 to 10 points. After pressing the last point, press <Set Multipoints> to confirm the area. When using this method, you can only specify one area. In addition, you cannot designate a rectangular area and a polygonal area at the same time.
Specifying a more accurate area
Since areas are specified on the preview screen, they may shift when actual copies are made. If you want to specify more accurate areas, enter dimensions that you have measured in advance. As indicated in the diagram, measure the distance between the right edge of the area and the original's right edge (X1), the left edge of the area and the original's right edge (X2), the top edge of the area and the original's top edge (Y1), and the bottom edge of the area and the original's top edge (Y2), press <Numeric Key Entry> in step 5, and enter the dimensions of X1, X2, Y1, and Y2 using the numeric keys.
Combining with the Image Repeat mode
If you want to use <Framing> and <Repeat Images> at the same time, set <Repeat Images> first, and then set <Framing>.
